More of the 1930’s – Get the Makeup Look of Rochelle Hudson

This is such a cute and natural look. Rochelle Hudson looks so young in this print. With the plaid, she is quite the modern day hipster! 😉 This makeup look is very neutral; therefore, I see it working for many complexions and eye/hair colors. Here’s what I did to achieve this simple, 1930’s inspired makeup look.

FACE: I evened out my complexion with Shiseido Stick Foundation in O20. I blend with my fingers. Under my eyes, I applied Covergirl Simply Ageless Concealer in Corrector, with my fingers. With the puff included, I applied Lancôme Dual Finish Powder in Matte Ecru. With a blush brush, I applied mark Good Glowing Powder Blush in Star Glo, a natural pink with just enough coral. This is a color that I have rediscovered. It’s really pretty.

EYES: Brows are penciled in finely. I filled in brows with Benefit Instant Brow Pencil in Light/Medium (even though Rochelle’s are much darker). I brushed brows in place with the spoolie. Eye makeup is simple. I’m using Physician’s Formula Baked Collection Eye Shadow in Baked Sands. With a dry, large eyeshadow brush, I applied the lightest champagne shimmer shade from lash line to brows. With a medium sized shadow brush, I applied the medium warm brown shimmer from lash line to crease and blended. I also lined the bottom lashes with this shade. I lined top and bottom lashes with Avon Ultra Luxury Eye Liner in Dark Brown. I then smudged over it with a liner brush with the darkest shade in the Baked Sands trio. I curled lashes and applied a few coats of Estee Lauder More Than Mascara in More Black to top and bottom lashes.

LIPS: Lips are healthy with just a hint of color. I applied Badger Lip Tint & Shimmer in Rose Tourmaline, the lip tint end. As you can see in my picture, my lips are really chapped. It has been very cold, snowy, and windy here. My lips need balm!

Now for a fragrance. I want something “sporty” in a croquet sort of way. I think that Burberry Weekend is classy but relaxed enough for this look. Plus, it’s “plaid”.

Do you have any weekend plans? I’ve decided that I’m not letting the cold and rain keep me in the house. I need to go out and replenish my spices, buy stuff to make that kyphi incense, and sniff some ‘fumes at Barney’s. I realize that I have very limited Serge Lutens exposure. I haven’t tried any of his florals. Any suggestions?

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. So PRETTY! This is one of my favorite looks, because it is just so darned sweet.

    #fumechat again tonight, same time, if you’re around!

    Speaking of Lutens, I found an amber I can tolerate! Ambre Sultan. Really digging it. It reminds me of the kind of amber resins I would find when I was a teenager, with a hit of brightness from herbs.

    1. TY. I like it too because it’s so “work” friendly and it takes like 5 minutes to apply.
      Yes, still #fumechat’n! I forgot about it until this afternoon, really busy day at work.
      I love Ambre Sultan.
